Trump Wants Illegal Immigrants Who 'Invade' US Sent Immediately Back Home

President Trump on Sunday called for illegal immigrants who “invade” the U.S. to be sent “back from where they came” from without due process for deportation cases.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order,” he tweeted. “Most children come without parents…”

“Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years! Immigration must be based on merit - we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!” he added. 

The president's suggestion was quickly criticized by groups like the ACLU, which said what he was calling for was illegal. 

“What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional,” Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, told the AP. “Any official who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally.”

The House is expected to vote on immigration legislation this week, but Trump has signaled the lawmakers are "wasting their time."

"Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!" he wrote on Twitter Friday.
